Working toward customer successes

Working with customers is one of the best things about my job: how to create real business success for a customer with our product, understanding the value that we add, how we support our customers in their journey, and how we make that journey together. Ultimately, the success of Speer IT depends on the success of our customers.

I love questions!

In my job as Service Desk Team Lead, I am the first point of contact for any customer who has a question or a problem that needs solving. And our software applications are often capable of more than customers realize, so questions give us an opportunity to show them how to benefit from the full potential. And, of course, we also help them when they run into problems. I love a challenge and I love a happy customer, so no problem is too big to tackle, as far as I'm concerned. The Service Desk also runs daily maintenance on databases, tests new applications and functionality, and monitors our customer systems proactively to keep things running as smoothly as possible for our customers.

Sharing knowledge and having fun go hand-in-hand

My work as an account manager and trainer for our French-speaking customers has technical and theoretical aspects on the one hand, and it is very hands-on and human on the other, which makes it all quite interesting. This combination of savvy and social is reflected throughout the company and what I like is that it doesn't matter where you come from to find your spot. Sharing knowledge and having fun go hand-in-hand at Speer IT!

What our people say

Danielle Nierop

Sr. Marketing Manager

"I have been in the IT industry for almost 30 years, so I am familiar with the many benefits of digitalisation.

Through an old acquaintance, I joined Speer IT in the position of Sr Marketing Manager. A role that offers me another fun challenge in which I can apply all my all-round marketing knowledge.

Speer IT has the ambition to increase its international footprint and become a major player abroad as well. That is one of my focus areas to start realising that growth together."

Janine Venema

Team Lead Software Development

"At my previous employer, I had reached the top of the career opportunities, but I was eager to grow further. I got that chance at Speerworks. I started out at Speer as a software consultant, and after a thorough training, I was quickly assigned to customer migration projects. I did this for two years with tremendous pleasure.

When I had plans to relocate to one of the Dutch islands, continuing with the consultancy work would have been too difficult. To accommodate my situation, Speer IT allowed me to become a tester. Since then, the Test Team has grown significantly and I am now the Team Lead. 

I look back with a lot of pride at what we were able to achieve. That is the beauty of working at Speer IT. Anything is possible and I feel like I am still far from outgrowing this company. Speer IT always works to ensure you are in the right place and that you can continue to challenge yourself."

Paul Konings

UI/UX Specialist

"I've been with Speer IT for over 12 years and have been on quite a journey regarding roles. I started on the Service Desk, managed projects, was a Product Owner, and I am now a UI/UX Specialist. That's where my heart lies—combining the creative with technology and designing and developing functionality and screens.

I particularly look at how our users interact with our applications and what they need. I incorporate that into the design and make sure that usability comes first.

Why I like working at Speer IT is because everyone here is equal to each other. My colleagues and management listen to my ideas. They are open to innovation and I get a lot of freedom in how the team approach things. Speer IT helps me with my ambitions and personal growth. We work together on the future of Cocon Fiber with new techniques and ideas."
